What is Terra Torphy ?
Terra Trophy was created as a motorsports series that caters to the overland enthusiast. Inspired by the iconic Camel Trophy, Terra Trophy combines competition with long distance adventure travel. The event will utilize a time-speed-distance rally format. Unlike other rallies where speed is the main objective, TSD rallies are about matching the target times and speeds between checkpoints. While most other rallies are a single vehicle team, Terra Trophy will require 3-6 vehicle teams that must start and finish together.
Terra Trophy is designed to push teams and rigs to the limits. The routes will include everything from rock gardens, steep climbs, off camber washes and exciting water crossings. Every trail will require drivers full attention to navigate safely and vehicle recovery skills will be needed. Teamwork and strategy will come into play and only teams with the drive to finish will cross the line at the end.
On Saturday June 4th 2022, Over 100 rigs will come together to compete as teams in a Time Speed Distance rally format. Unlike most rallies that are about being the fastest, this rally is about matching the provided target times. Using a handful of navigations tools, teams will be required to match the routes and times by Terra Trophy and points will be given for every minute over/under the target times. The rally will tackle some of the most iconic trails within Windrock Park. This rally will include all levels of trails (mostly blue trails) and will push both rigs and drivers to the limits!

Format & Rules
Terra Trophy will use a TSD rally format for all competitions. Drivers will be sent off as a team in intervals. Teams will be required to follow the correct route as provided and stop at each checkpoint in the correct order before crossing the finish. The team that collects the least amount of penalty points will win.
The route will be given the week prior to the event. The file will be sent via email to all drivers. The file will be a GPX file created using GAIA. You can use this file in any way necessary. With the GPX file, we will also be sending a list of trails. Teams will be required to put together their route based off the GPX file, trail numbers and Windrock Park App.
Leaving time for teams will be selected at random. Prior to the event and after all teams are registered, all teams will be placed in a hat and the list will be created at random.
Each team will be given one (1) rally checkpoint sheet. If you misplace this sheet at any time during the rally, your team will automatically be disqualified. All team members must be present at each checkpoint. When you arrive, you must have your checkpoint rally sheet with you. One (1) driver will be required to exit the vehicle, go to the checkpoint table, and receive a time and stamp from the checkpointer before going to the next checkpoint. The lead truck must be stopped in the coned off "checkpoint box" before coming to the checkpoint table. You may NOT walk past another team to get your time and stamp. All teams will be required to stop at all checkpoints in the correct order. Missing a checkpoint will result in 500 points.
After your team has completed the correct route and crossed all checkpoints, all teams will be required to cross the finish. You must cross the finish line with the entire team! When crossing the finish, the lead truck will be required to stop in the finish box under the Terra Trophy arch. Here you will receive your final time/stamp for the day.
